The Art of Stillness in a Noisy World

Magnus Fridh, illustrated by Kristin Lidström

More and more people long to get away from life’s high demands and the constant flow of information. Using the three themes ‘Everyday life’, ‘Nature’ and ‘Meditation’, Magnus Fridh discusses places where it’s possible to take time out and experience silence. Some people might find spending time in urban parks beneficial whilst others might find meditation and being more present in the simple tasks of everyday life useful. It’s not always a question of making a big change. Surprisingly, it’s often the little changes which have the biggest impact. Change can help us achieve a less stressful life and can also increase our creativity, inspiration and enthusiasm for life in general. The Art of Stillness in a Noisy World invites you to read and relax whilst enjoying the calming illustrations.
